Bears have much on the line
(MCT) — Under tackle long has been viewed as the key position in the Cover-2 defense, an athletic and disrupting figure in the heart of the scheme.
Warren Sapp carved out what likely will be a Hall of Fame career playing it for the Buccaneers. Tommie Harris was selected to three Pro Bowls with the Bears. But based on the investment in Julius Peppers in 2010 and now the move to select Shea McClellin in the first round in the spring, it’s worth exploring if there has been a shift in philosophy up front. Is it about edge rushers now for the Bears?
Edge rushers can play in any scheme and the Bears need more from the position this season. But they still look like they have a pretty good under tackle if Henry Melton can take the next step in what amounts to a crucial season for him.
